Directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Mary Kom starring Priyanka Chopra is about to hit theaters. The highly anticiapted film will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and then release on September 5th.
At a special promotional event, the actress talked about movies in Bollwood that feature women as the main character, “Mary Kom is a film obviously about Mary Kom. First and the foremost, female-centric roles are not welcomed in Bollywood. While I was coming here, everybody was telling me that you are doing a fabulous woman-oriented film. When you get to watch ‘PK’ or ‘Kick’ do you say that ‘I am going to watch a male-oriented film’. Nobody says that.”
Adding, “Things will change for women in Hindi film industry the day when we go and watch a movie after seeing its trailer, without having any gender bias in our minds.”
